I've been given the "liebster award" from the lovely Torrie at Free Spirit Reigns
I'm pretty excited. (this being my first blog award/blog tag and all)
When I first got the message I said "what the bidness is liebster?"
Then I came to find that it's an award for up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
It's German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasent, value, cute, endearing, and welcome.
and I literally said "awwwwww." I feel way special.

Torrie's 11 Questions
1. Why did you start blogging & when? I started blogging in January. Why? I want to be crafty and cutesy..haha I thought a blog was the best motivation to do that.
2. Who is your role model? Is it too cliche to say Jesus? Cause He is my role model. He's way too wonderful.
3. What season is your favorite? Spring. I love flowers blooming, waking up to birds chirping, semi warm days, and crisp wind. it's so lovely.
4. Are you an introvert or an extrovert? I vote both. Sometimes I'm way crazy and outgoing and crazy. Other times nothing would make me more content than curling up with a movie or a book for days by my lonesome.
5. What motivates you on a daily basis? I thought about this question really hard. I feel like since I'm not a wife or a momma, my motivations aren't too important. Right now it's probably definitely money. Its definitely my first priority. (cause I think I need to finish school eventually...or something)
6. Early bird or night owl? Early bird. At night, once I get tired, there's no stopping me.
7. Favorite movie of all time? 70% of Will Ferrell movies. Anchorman, blades of glory, land of the lost, the other guys, bewitched, talladega nights...oh the list goes on.
8. Where did you vacation last? Orlando Florida. I went to harry potter world. Best day of my life.
9. How open are you about your blog with family & friends? Half open. Half closed. I always link my blog to my Facebook, but it's not something I bring up in daily conversation, ha I always feel weird about doing that.
10. What's your favorite makeup look that you rock? Growing up with 4 brothers and a football fantasy mom has left me not knowing too much about makeup...but I'm learning. One day I felt bold and bought some dark fuchsia lipstick, and I wear that on occasion. It always makes me feel real hot. ;)
11. Do you collect anything? Not on purpose. but I do have an obsession with buying nail polish. and fabric remnants. its a problem.
